MPS terminal 3 welcomes deepest draught ship MSC Beryl to Ghana

Meridian Port Services (MPS), the operator of the Tema container terminal in Ghana, in July welcomed the MSC Beryl ship at Terminal 3, which boasts the deepest draught of any craft to visit the Ghanaian coast.

With a draught of 15.95 meters on arrival and 16.2 meters on departure and measuring 366 meters long and 48 meters wide, it enabled MPS to handle 3,520 twenty-foot equivalent containers (TEUs) with a productivity rate of 102.5 movements an hour.

Mohamed Samara, managing director, MPS said, “We are proud to have welcomed this ship. The performance was made possible by the massive investment plan implemented by MPS. The new port basin commissioned in 2019 is accessed via an entry canal measuring 3,500 meters long and 225 meters wide, with a draught of 18.7 meters.”
